What you'll do

The 2 hour surfing lesson will consist of two big parts. Firstly, we'll practice on the beach and I will tell you about some good to know things and things to watch out for in the water.
Secondly, we will enter the water starting from shallow to a little deeper depending on how comfortable you are in the water and begin to surf. That includes balancing on your board, paddling to catch a wave and the final pop up which is standing up on the board.

Brian taught our team of 7 the surfing basics and got most of us standing on our boards by the end of the session! He helped each of us out individually multiple times throughout the 2 hours and we had such a great time learning from him! Will definitely be back for more lessons in the future.

My son (8) and I had a blast surfing with Brian. Looking at the other surfing groups which share 1 instructor for up to 10 surfers I'm glad we booked this experience instead of going through the more well known surfing school in the area

Brian was very accommodating in that he allowed my party to include 1 additional person beyond his capacity and helped us rent an extra board. We started the lessons simulating how to stand on the board on the beach. Afterwards, we tried to surf for real with his assistance, in a trial-and-error fashion with a bit of tips and pointers along the way.
